Welcome to Seymour Johnson AFB

Seymour Johnson is a United States Air Force Base that is located in Goldsboro, North Carolina. The base covers 2,300 acres and was opened in April of 1942 as a Technical School and an Army Air Forces Technical Training Command. In 1943, its secondary mission was to prepare officers and enlisted men for overseas duty. The unit was known as the Provisional Overseas Replacement Training Center. The base was named after Navy test pilot Seymour Johnson who was never part of the Air Force. He was a local Navy test pilot who died in a plane crash in 1940 just prior to the start of World War II. Units stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base include the 4th Fighter Wing of the Air Combat Command, and the 916th Air Refueling Wing, an Air Force Reserve Command. By the end of World War II, the base was designated as a central assembly station for processing and training troops being reassigned to the U.S. or other Pacific operations. The base was closed in August of 1947 and was deactivated for more than a decade until its reactivation in 1956 when the 83rd Fighter wing became host unit to the base.

In the Base Realignment and Closure initiative of 2005, the recommendation was made to realign Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota which will bring many more new military personnel to the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and the Goldsboro area.
